The Friendship Bracelet Reinvented

Jewelbots are programmable friendship bracelets designed to spark girls’ (and boys’!) interest in coding. The Jewelbots are the first of its kind, an open source wearable device where kids dictate the functionality.
Jewelbots do not require internet service or a cell phone. Out of the box kids can connect with up to 8 different friends, see when they are nearby and send each other secret messages.

Computer Education Rethought

Kids simply connect their Jewelbot to a phone or computer and get started - no prior experience in coding needed!
Jewelbots introduce the basics of coding and once they get the hang of it, they can test their skills with our coding tutorials and exchange with other kids in our online community - sharing their creations, get inspiration and find help when they get stuck.

Spark Their Creativity

Jewelbots are the first of its kind, an open source wearable device where kids dictate the functionality.

  • Connect with Friends

    Out of the box kids can connect with up to 8 different friends and assign a color to them. If a friend is nearby the Jewelbot will glow in that color and friends can send secret messages to each other.

  • 100% Safe For Kids

    We are making a product for kids, and their safety is our number one priority. Jewelbots don’t contain a GPS and we don’t store any personal data of any kind.

  • Online Community

    Our Online Community provides a safe environment in case kids get stuck. They can get help, share what they have done, and find inspiring code to try for themselves while engaging with their friends.

  • Jewelbots App

    Our innovative Jewelbots App allows kids without prior coding experience to learn the fundamentals of computer science and to create their own Jewelbots functions.

  • Self Motivated Learning

    Jewelbots bring Computer Science education to the next level. Learning how to code with Jewelbots feels like playing with friends. Kids can test their skills with step by step coding challenges and get instant gratification.

  • Open Source

    For the curious tinkerer, Jewelbots offer the perfect platform to explore what is possible with wearable technology. Using the Arduino IDE, kids can literally make the bracelets do whatever they dream up.

Out of the Box Features

More than just pretty Jewelry

  • Detect Nearby Friends

    Kids can connect their Jewelbots with each other as a symbol of their friendship. Unlike a traditional friendship bracelet, Jewelbots will glow with and give a short vibration to show when a friend is close by. If all kids of a friend group are together, their Jewelbots will go into "Rainbow party mode". Getting together with friends has never been more fun.

  • Send Secret Messages

    Kids love their secret messages. Jewelbots allow kids to come up with their own set of codes on the fly. Kids can then send a buzz or light message to a buddy across the room or to their complete friend group. Using the free Jewelbots App kids can come up with even more ways to communicate.

  • Match Your Style

    Jewelbots come with replaceable charms and bands. Kids can match their style, express their mood and have Jewelbots look different every day. Each Jewelbot comes with two charms and three different bands. We offer additional styles and colors so there is a Jewelbot for everyone.

No Phone or Computer required for all out of the box features!

Learn how to code

No Prior Experience Needed

  • Create Their Own Code

    Jewelbots are the perfect tool to introduce kids 7-14 to the principles of programming. Jewelbots are perfect for beginners and our open source Arduino IDE offers a full fledged coding experience for pros. Jewelbots use Arduino - a language also taught in many school's educational programs.

  • No Prior Experience Needed

    Even without prior exposure to code, or help from a parent, kids can learn how to write their own software for their Jewelbots. Our step-by-step tutorials and online courses take kids by the hand, resulting in a quick sense of achievement and motivational boost.

  • Online Community And Tutorials

    Want to share what you have done? Get inspired and see what's possible with Jewelbots? Our Online Community offers easy step-by-step tutorials, sample code and articles for kids and parents alike. It's a safe, judgement free environment, and the perfect place to meet new friends and engage with likeminded coders.

Questions and Answers 

Q: When will Jewelbots ship?

We are shipping a first batch of Alpha Jewelbots to testers in May 2016. Afterwards we are fulfilling our Kickstarter and pre-sale orders. Our estimated shipping timeline is Summer 2016. Please subscribe to our newsletter or have a look at our kickstarter page.

Q: What features do Jewelbots have out of the box?

Jewelbots do not require internet service or a cell phone. Out of the box kids can connect with up to 8 different friends, see when they are nearby and send each other secret messages. With access to a computer or smart-phone (Apple/Android) kids can create multiple friend groups and add additional functionality through the power of code.

Q: What is the perfect age for Jewelbots?

Good question! We have tested Jewelbots with kids aged 5 and up. The out of the box functionality - paired with the ability to work without a phone - makes Jewelbots ideal for younger kids. To use some of the more advanced mods and features we recommend that your kid is between 8-13 years old. But then again, with some help, even younger kids can use Jewelbots. This being said, there really is no limit on the other end of the spectrum; we are seeing parents, and for that matter grandparents of our Alpha testers getting their own Jewelbots ;-)

Q: How do Jewelbot’s advanced features work?

Out of the box kids can make their bracelets light up when a friend is nearby or send messages to a buddy across the room. They can come up with their own functionality and program their Jewelbot to behave in lots of cool ways!

Jewelbots are also open source, so for the curious tinkerer, they offer the perfect platform to explore what is possible with wearable technology communication. Using the Arduino IDE, girls can literally make the bracelets do whatever they dream up. Light up when they get a call on their phone, why not?

Q: Do I need a phone/computer?

No! However to use the more advanced features such as friend groups and special mods you need to either download the Jewelbots App or connect your Jewelbot to a computer (via USB).

Q: 2, 3, 4… – how many friends can you have?

Out of the box: 4 / after connecting your Jewelbot to your phone you can manage 8 friend groups with up to 16 friends.

Q: What devices and operating systems does Jewelbot support?

We currently support Apple iPads, iPhone and Android devices. For Mac and Windows, we allow you to add code to your Jewelbot.

Q: Details? Give me all the technical specs!

Q: Are Jewelbots safe?



We are making a product for kids, and their safety is our number one priority. Jewelbots don’t contain a GPS and we don’t store any personal data of any kind.

Q: How does the Jewelbot mobile App work?

Using basic if/then statements, girls begin to learn the fundamentals of computer science while engaging with their friends and expressing themselves. They can create friend-groups and decide how their Jewelbot lights up and vibrates when they are together. Once they get a hang of it, they can use the app to write little mods and take their skills further:

Instagram Mod: light up when you get an new like
Twitter Mod: vibrate when you get a new follower
Facebook Mod: flash when you get a message from your parents

…the mod possibilities are endless.
And of course – Jewelbots basic functions can be used without a phone.

Q: My kid can code, what's next?

Jewelbots are also open source, so for the curious tinkerer, they offer the perfect platform to explore what is possible with wearable technology communication. Using the Arduino IDE, kids can literally make the bracelets do whatever they dream up. Light up when they get a call on their phone, why not?

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects.

So yes, there are really no limits to what you can do with Jewelbots. Use them as a button to interact with another bluetooth device? Why not!
